What album cover showed Lionel Richie as the Judas of funk?

What album cover featured notable musicians as the twelve apostles of funk, with Lionel Richie as Judas? This was described to me in the early nineties. I think it was the cover of a hip hop album. Perhaps it wasn't an album cover, but some other artwork. Google returns a couple of hits for Richie as "Judas of funk," but other searches led nowhere.

The great cover letter debate

I am ready to pull out my hair!! What is the difference between a cover letter and a "Personal Qualifications Statement"? I feel as though I am merely going to be restating information. ( I am applying for a position as an adjunct instructor, and I have been asked to write both.)

Belle and Sebastian Cover

I heard of cover of Belle and Sebastian's "Get Me Away from Here I'm Dying," and I cannot figure out who was performing it. The guy who was playing it didn't know; he said it got it off some movie soundtrack or something, so I don't think it was a particularly rare or difficult-to-find cover. The singer's voice sounded a bit like Morrissey. It definitely was not Stuart Murdoch. Is anyone familiar with it? It's killing me.

What Mexican rock/rap song did I hear?

Charlatans Cover Song

I heard a cover of a Charlatans (UK, depending on geographic location) song in Banana Republic earlier this week. Problem is I can't remember which song. The cover had a motown, 70's funk tinge. Anyone know the song or performing artist?

Dead Cow Wrappers For Words

I've seen a couple people recently with very nice fairly stiff leather journal covers, maybe a little smaller than 8 1/2 by 11, that hold a smaller replaceable floppy journal inside. I want one. I've looked around some, but all I can find are the cheap mass-produced ones. Does the hive mind have a lead on where to get a good-quality leather cover online or in the SF bay area?

iTunes cover art for 45s?

A while back, I came across a site that would generate artwork suitable for use in iTunes for those odd old singles you have on MP3. The artwork resembled an old 45 RPM record and I think could be customized with the track and artist name. Ring any bells? I can't find it in my bookmarks.
